The work I did was rewarding for me …I learned a huge amount about Indigenous policy issues that I didn't even realise I didn't know until I spent time at CAEPR.

The internship was a platform for me to gain essential professional experience which was also in line with my passions. It is for this reason that I chose to start my career with this internship, and why I would recommend it to anyone with similar views.  This was my first experience in transferring the knowledge I had learned at university to real-world use.

The whole internship programme was amazing for me. My placement at CAEPR definitely suited where I am at the moment in my anthropology studies. The research/academia environment was great and it is so amazing to have the opportunity to publish an article, which is perfect as I am going on to do further study and hopefully a PhD in anthropology.

I have thoroughly enjoyed being at CAEPR. The staff are all wonderful people and excellent academics in each of their fields. No matter the task I was given I found the work interesting throughout the entire internship. I absolutely loved being able to apply my knowledge in a practical manner to help not just my supervisor, but hopefully also the Aboriginal Land Councils of NSW who were the subject of the research project.

My time at CAEPR may be the less expected internship but my time at the research organisation helped me to broaden my understanding of Aboriginal history, aspects of certain Aboriginal cultures, and contemporary issues faced by those who identify as Indigenous Australians.

I feel like I have accomplished personal and professional goals at CAEPR: gaining experience in a diverse working environment that distinctly fosters research and policy areas which are significantly undervalued

My experience at CAEPR has definitely inspired me to continue further study next year and continue on this path.

I have learnt so much about Indigenous affairs, different disciplines and how they interrelate with policy and indigenous peoples, policy, research, the list is endless.

At CAEPR, the internship showed me the practical use of a law degree outside of a firm and how much of an impact effective research can make in the world – in this case, economic policy at State Government level.  My experience at CAEPR helped expand my perspective of law from strictly doctrinal (black-letter law) to a broader socio-legal perspective.
